The French and the Fuckers

Parisian women are normally portrayed as elegant and delicate, but those words just do not describe Uffie. Maybe it's the time she spends in sleazy Miami that has transformed the cute, would-be French chanteuseinto a fiery, cussing electro-chick with a predilection for paraphrasing classic lines in American rap while hiding behind a mighty vocoder. Enthusiasts of booty bass or quirky techno will find kinship in Uffie's upfront grooves, which she brings to San Francisco on Friday, Aug. 25, at the Rickshaw Stop at 10 p.m. Admission is $7-12; call 861-2011 or visit for more info. — Tamara Palmer

In the continuing trend of sleazy gay club nights — ones that have saturated the Tenderloin as of late, and are littered by an alterna-queer crowd of young lads and the 30-or-over geriatrics who love them — "Starfucker" raises the bar on this delightful genre. This Friday the party pairs with Trannyshack's Heklina to host the "Best Tenderloin Ass Contest," where possessing choice tail could land you $100 (that's about 10 bags of literally heart-wrenching crack, which can be found on any street corner in your award-winning booty's titular 'hood!). But be forewarned: What with the filth that fills the place and their loos, merely doing a pre-pageant wipe down there just before showtime could guarantee you a trip to the free clinic. Fresh electro, dance, and indie-rock sounds will be provided by DJ Underdog before and after the butt pageant. The night goes down on Friday, Aug. 25th (and every fourth Friday of the month), at Deco Lounge from 10 p.m.-3 a.m. Admission is $5; call 346-2025 or visit for more info. Brock Keeling

A local transplant from Dallas, DJ/producer Lance DeSardi (aka Land Shark) has been one of the chief reasons that people outside of the area still care about the electronic music that we make. Land Shark had its first live show in June and features cheekily dark electro and house musings from the new self-titled, debut album. Sal Principato, beatnik frontman of New York's Liquid Liquid (whose "Cavern" was gaffled by Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel for the bassline of '80s anthem "White Lines,") also appears on Saturday, August 26, at Club Six at 10 p.m. Admission is $5; call 863-1221 or visit for more info.
